Overview

Singita Serengeti House is an exclusive and luxurious property located in the private 350,000-acre Singita Grumeti Game Reserve, Northern Tanzania. This stunning ‘home from home’, perched on the Sasakwa hillside, offers fabulous views across the vast plains and unsurpassable comfort in a truly wild location.

With its wide-open verandas and tasteful blend of European design and African artefacts, Singita Serengeti House provides a deluxe yet unpretentious retreat with a tennis court and a fabulous 25-metre infinity pool overlooking a salt-lick and water hole often frequented by a family of elephants. Archery is offered and there is a high-end spa and gym at the nearby Sasakwa Lodge. Somewhat unusually for a property of its calibre, the house has been specifically designed to welcome families and small groups of friends. Its commitment to supporting the local community means that staff members are from the surrounding area and much of the food served in the restaurant is locally sourced. There is relaxed ‘family-style’ dining, with platters of food served in the centre of the table and there is also an award-winning wine cellar. Attention to detail is a given and the facilities and service are outstanding.

Up to 8 guests can stay at the property. There are two elegant suites located in the main house plus two detached garden suites. The bedrooms are tastefully decorated, spacious and well-appointed, all with their own viewing veranda and en-suite bathroom. Each of the large bathrooms has a double vanity basin, a shower and a free-standing bath.

There are plenty of activities to enjoy in the locality. Private game drives in state-of-the-art landrovers offer visitors the opportunity to view up-close the great variety of wildlife found in this area including cheetah, bearded wildebeest, Bat Eared Fox, giraffe, lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard and more. It is worth noting that the Migration Path varies from year to year and at times this location may not be the best in the Serengeti for game-viewing, although nothing can really detract from the enjoyment of a stay at this first-class property. Walking and horseback safaris (experienced riders only) are also offered, as are early morning Balloon Safaris. The private nature of the Grumeti reserve means that night time safaris are possible.

In the interest of safety, participation of children in game activities is at the discretion of the guide. A babysitting service is provided, along with myriad activities tailored to children's needs including arts and crafts, baking with chefs, butterfly capture (with identification and subsequent release), face painting and a fantastic mini-rangers course involving tracking animals, an astronomy safari, flower-pressing, and tuition in bush survival techniques.

Singita Serengeti house offers a private safari experience in opulent but relaxed surroundings. The price tag is high but you most certainly get what you pay for; this is one of the best safari properties in Africa and will not disappoint.

  • Everything was fab, I especially loved Tuningi such a special place and my son got to see his favourite animal the cheetah (after a bit of time hunting about on foot!). Mauritius is lovely we saw quite a bit of the island in the end.

  • We had a wonderful trip to Morocco. What a fascinating country. Thank you so much for all of your help making things smooth and less stressful!

    Here are a few things we wanted to pass on:

    Dar Housnia was absolutely delightful. It was like an entire wing of a house to ourselves with perfect Moroccan decor. The private area where we ate was so cute, the riad staff so accommodating. I loved waking in the cozy space with our family and hearing both call to prayer as well as roosters. Just perfect.

    I was a little unclear how to ask what time we were being picked up etc, but your office promptly replied to my emails - even on weekends- when we had these questions about transport times. Once, we met our guide in Imlil these details we not problematic as our guide “Abraham” totally took care of us. Abraham was awesome. You should definitely request him again in the future. He was young (29)and energetic. He had a ton of hiking experience in Imlil as he was from there. He also seemed to know everything else about morocco, the desert, the culture, etc, etc. He was approachable, kind, patient, great with our kids and answered SO MANY of our questions.

    The hike was lovely - after rain the day prior in Marrakech - there was snow in the mountains. It was gorgeous. We may have been up for a longer hike up Mt Taboukel if I had known this was a realistic option for families ( I thought from reading that it was too technical for us). Yet not sure we had enough days for all these things always since getting in the desert was a priority.

    The mountain house, Dar adar, was just as described… very basic. The wifi was broken (which was a nice break when you have pre-teens addicted to phones, plus my husband called no wifi an amenity to not be available by email for his work!)). There was no heat and the fireplace helped a tad - but was so very cold in the rooms. My husband loved the rustic space, I may have gone up one step in niceness of mountain accommodation if I had to do it over again. Yet, meeting the other families in this Dar Adar (including another Tourdust family from England) made this house very memorable.

    We were then joined by our driver for the next several days, Jamal. What a fun guy and a perfect driver. He could joke with my kids, he had a fun smile, and he had worked with Abraham before so they were a great team. The drive to desert was long as I knew it would be. It was nice to have the stop on way there near Ait Ben Haddu. The drive back from desert was long. It was more near 10 hours of driving (plus 1 hour at lunch = 11 hours) but I wouldn’t have made any different choices.

    The luxury desert camp was far and away the highlight of our trip. The tents were adorable, I was sufficiently warm even at night inside the tent. We loved the camel riding, the ATV vehicles at a nearby camp, sunsets on the dunes, music around the camp fire, meals with others at the camp and more.

    The last night was at Riad Jona. This was so very very lovely. The food was amazing - such a good idea to eat here after our long drive back to Marrakech. They had a small dining pool plus a hot tub which was delightful. It was almost more of a boutique hotel as it had several rooms.

    MissingGwyneth R reviewing Luxury Family Desert Holiday on 11 December 2018

  • The trip was amazing everything was better than we could have imagined.
    There was a moment climbing the mount Kenya where my wife accused me of tricking her into doing this (half kidding) as some of the nights got pretty cold, but we were dressed well and the sunrise at the peak was astonishing.
    Safari was spectacular, Ben who was our main guide and driver was awesome! We saw everything excepts rhinos which were more of a hope than a reality. We also were able to watch a rock python eat a Thompson gazel live. It was one of the most interesting and unsettling things I have ever seen.
    Just overall, so many moments that make you think wow or I can't believe I am here. Thank you for your help in getting everything set up. I don't believe I could have booked the trip without your help and guidance. It was an amazing way to start our marriage and truly the trip of a lifetime!
